Wow - have we had lots of rain today. Every time I thought I would go to the studio it rained and rained. Quite stormy but nice really. This is a pic of my playing with the new fabric I am getting a giant roll of. I have done rubbings with shiva stik and ironed it to panne velvet and then stamped on 2 pieces and stitched flowers. I attacked these with a heat gun and painted on them with Twinkling H20s. Underneath I have hand stitched on some of the heavy paper and metal shim which I punched out using my new flower punch. Plus I have managed to add three of the tiny tags I found. What I have discovered is that the fabric works a treat which is just as well as I have 1000 metres coming!
Tonight Val and Jim came around and we sat in the studio for a glass of wine and then popped down to the Brisbane for fish 'n chips. A good night but still raining. Perth needs it.
